1  Cisco / CCNA / Taking 640-801 on Wednesday. on: May 18, 2004, 06:07:48 PM
Please keep me posted on the results of your exam.  I am studying right now and I feel pretty good about things.  I know subnetting, and have some experience with 1900 switches, routers and pix devices.  I took a class and have some equipment to play with at home.  I wish you the best of luck.

I have been using Exam Cram for studying it seems pretty good studying software.  I used the Virtual Lab Platinum in class and found it to be ok, all the commands simply didn't work like in the real world.  

Again, good luck.
2  Cisco / CCNA / CCNA what do I need? (considering what I have) on: January 09, 2004, 03:25:36 PM
I work in a small IT shop doing just about everything.  I would like to get my CCNA sometime this year.  I have the MCSE, Net+ so I think I have a pretty stable foundation and think I can go with the 1 test format.

I have the following hardware at my disposal,  Pix 501, 2641 Router and a 1900 series switch.  

I am going to buy the Cisco Press book.  What are your thoughts?

Also, I am wondering how much of this will help me with a Netscreen 25 Firewall?  I don't expect the configuration to be the same, but the logic shouldn't be any different?

3  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / Server 2003 / Picks for 299 Beta... on: November 24, 2003, 01:44:55 PM
I bought a few books myself.  I have never tried anything by Wiley, but I bought Windows 2003 Bible and 2003 Security Bible.  I went through the first 5 chapters... most of it is pretty much review until Chapter 5.  It finally gets into some of the new feature ins 2003, SIP and so forth.
4  Other IT certifications / Citrix CCA, CCEA / Exam 222?? on: October 24, 2003, 10:33:47 AM
I see you took the CCA, was it terribly difficult?

I suspect that I could a 221 book and study from there.
5  Other IT certifications / Citrix CCA, CCEA / Exam 222?? on: October 23, 2003, 02:45:42 PM
I have been running Citrix Metaframe XP FR3 for awhile now and would like to take the exam.  However, according to their website the 222 exam is coming out November 24th. I wonder how much of a change it will be from 221.  I want to buy a study guide but figure it would be best just to wait.

I checked bookpool and didn't see any books for the 222 exam?  Do they typically come out early like the MS Press?
6  Other IT certifications / Linux/Unix / Setting up a server? Newbie needs help... on: October 23, 2003, 02:43:15 PM
I have to agree that Redhat is the easiest to setup.  I was able to get one up and running with not too much difficulty.  I am learning a bunch about the command line interface since we didn't use the GUI at all due to the security risks.  Installation of RH 9 is very easy.
7  Other IT certifications / Linux/Unix / Linux+ Tomorrow at 10:00 on: October 22, 2003, 11:34:25 AM
Passed.  I didn't score as high as I thought but it was fairly easy.  In general, I think Comptia exams are pretty easier to take than MS exams.
8  Other IT certifications / Linux/Unix / Linux+ Tomorrow at 10:00 on: October 21, 2003, 05:15:13 PM
I feel pretty good.  I have been doing basically any online practice test I have come across.  I have been using the Linux+ Complete Study guide and some classwork, as well as messing around with our Apache Server.  

Thanks for the well wishes.
9  Other IT certifications / Linux/Unix / Linux+ Tomorrow at 10:00 on: October 21, 2003, 01:17:05 PM
I am sitting this exam tomorrow morning.  I feel pretty solid with my knowledge even though I have only been using it for a few months.  From what I can find on the internet this exam is pretty easy.  It just seems that there isn't much interest in?
10  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-227 / Passed on: September 25, 2003, 02:54:07 PM
I took this as my last elective for MCSE.  It was a fairly difficult test.  Not all the questions centered on ISA.  I studied everything I could get my hands on.  Experience definatly helps.  Now on to Linux+

Lots of installation questions which are fairly easy.  Many client configuration questions which are very trickily worded.
11  Other IT certifications / Linux/Unix / Linux is close to XP in usability on: August 11, 2003, 03:24:11 PM
I would not say that Linux any flavor is as easy to install as Windows 2000/XP but you are right is has gotten a lot closers.  I am fairly new to Linux and have been messing around with Redhat 7-9 and there have been some amazing improvements.  Application support is still weak.  Installation of applications is still lagging behind as well.
12  CompTIA / Other CompTIA certifications / help for linux newbies on: July 29, 2003, 12:27:58 PM
I am new to this as well, but I was turned on to

It is a great site.  It has all sort of useful information.
13  Other IT certifications / Linux/Unix / Anybody taken this test recently? on: July 22, 2003, 05:55:16 PM
I am taking a class in 2 weeks.  Picked the book up today and it doesn't look to great on my first glance.  ElementK courseware written by Gail Sandler.  

I have been tinkering with Redhat and FreeBsd just wanted some comments.
14  Microsoft (MCSE, MCSD, MOUS, MCAD) / 70-220 / Easy as pie with some practice on: June 27, 2003, 11:38:12 AM
I took the test today and passed.  Overall I think I panic too much for these exams.  Since I started working in the IT field and using this stuff everyday it all seems so much easier than when I was just taking classes.  I did take the class for the 70-220 and read whatever I could online.  The drag and drops are killers though, very complex.  This was no way as difficult as the 70-216.
15  Other IT certifications / Linux/Unix / Linux+ is it going to be useful for me? on: June 09, 2003, 07:12:34 PM
I hear what you are saying, however being that I have no experience I figured it would get me some.  The differences between freebsd and linux aren't that great.  I am not looking to just have a piece of paper.  I also don't want to try to master something that I truly don't understand that throughly.  I have a book, Linux administration for beginners.  I should be done with that well before the class I am interested in comes up.  I can always make my decision later.  Thanks for the input.
